Personal Experience: I received a complimentary, fully-outfitted Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer for the purpose of this review. He arrived packaged in their signature Cub Condo box. It’s always so fun to watch a child open that box! This time I was as excited as my son to see that little red nose peeking out of the window (I love Rudolph!), though I will admit that getting a bear delivered takes away the joy of creating your own bear in the Workshop. It’s truly a unique experience.
Rudolph came dressed in all his holiday glory… from his snowflake hat and scarf to little Rudolph slippers. They even remembered his classic glowing nose! Just click a button in his ear and the nose will blink for a minute or so. Rudolph and all of his apparel featured the same quality sewing and strong stuffing that I’ve come to expect from them. The sweater features a full-length hook and loop closure that is easy for little hands to dress and undress, yet securely keeps fashions intact when your bear is dressed. The hat, like many Build-A-Bear Workshop accessories, has openings to fit the ears. The fashions also fit other Build-A-Bear animals. Rudolph shows every sign of living a full life alongside our other Build-A-Bear friends.
If you like Rudolph, you may also like his friend Clarice. They sell for $25 each (unclothed). Rudolph’s holiday sweater sells for $8.50. The red bell collar is $4.50. The cozy snowflake hat and scarf sell for $8.50. And, those adorable little Rudolph slippers sell for $6.50 per pair. Be sure to drop by a Build-A-Bear Workshop or visit them online to see all of the adorable selections available for the holiday season!
I couldn’t resist a five-star rating on this one. Rudolph has never looked more adorable and Build-A-Bear Workshop always provides an awesome gift of great quality. You can purchase gift cards to allow the recipient the opportunity to create their own animal. If you buy the gift card in store, it will be packaged in a festive mini Cub Condo. And remember, kids aren’t the only ones that like to cuddle!
Pros: An ever-changing selection of characters ranging from basic teddy bears, dogs, cats, and other classics to well-known favorites and famous personalities. A large selection of outfits and accessories to dress your bear for every mood and season. Each bear can be customized to the recipient… or get a gift card to let them put their own touch on their new friend.
Cons: Buying the accessories for a bear can add up very quickly, but the items are good quality and the results are just so cute!
